Matvey Foundation Repair Case Studies: Foundation Repair in Lynnwood, WA

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 by Matthew Cote

Challenge

This home in Lynwood, WA had several foundation cracks and the foundation had shifted due to soil erosion from poor drainage. The client met with an engineer to discuss a permanent solution to stabilize the home's foundation. 

Solution

A total of 5 push piers were installed with a total lift of 1.5" back to original elevation. The foundation cracks were sealed with foam on the inside of the structure and exterior cracks were sealed with caulking. Our crew also installed a 9”x9” catch basins and 20 ft of drainage pipe was installed to keep water from saturating the foundation soils. The client was satisfied with the end results of the project and now has peace of mind as our work comes with a 25-year transferable warranty.
